The 2018 Paris ePrix (formally the 2018 Qatar Airways Paris ePrix) was a Formula E motor race held before a crowd of 48,000 spectators at the Circuit des Invalides in the Les Invalides building complex on 28 April 2018. It was the eighth race of the 2017‰ÛÒ18 Formula E season and the third edition of the event. The 49-lap race was won by Techeetah driver Jean-Ìäric Vergne after starting from pole position. Lucas di Grassi finished second for Audi and Virgin driver Sam Bird placed third.Vergne won the pole position by recording the fastest lap in qualifying and maintained his start line advantage heading into the first corner. Vergne kept the position for the next 23 laps as Bird had more electrical energy available and this allowed him to shorten Vergne’s lead and unsuccessfully tried to overtake him. Through the pit stop phase for the mandatory change into a second car, di Grassi took over the first position for two laps as a result of him conserving electrical energy before Edoardo Mortara held it for the following lap. Vergne regained the position after the pit stops ended and was unchallenged for the final third of the race due to teammate Andr̩ Lotterer battling Bird and later di Grassi and clinched his third victory of the season.
